One World, One UC Davis

One World, One UC Davis is you — a global network of people connected to our university. It is the positive impact of our unsung heroes, imaginative research teams and innovative thinkers. What our people share in common is they are transforming lives, celebrating humanity and nature, and inspiring breakthroughs in California and beyond.

In our campaign, we tell the stories about how together, at UC Davis, we are changing our world for the better. Read about some of the School’s unsung heroes, researchers and innovators below and tell us your story.

Gloria Rodriguez: Each One, Teach One

As a native Californian and daughter of farmworkers, Gloria Rodriguez held a special place in her heart for the UC system. She was always aware that UC Davis was at the forefront of agriculture and many other areas of research, but she never really dreamed she would have the opportunity to teach at the campus. Now as associate professor, she mentors students and junior faculty, particularly people of color like herself. Read her One UC Davis story here.

Rosa Manzo: Mentoring Mexican Parents and Students

Image of One World, One UC Davis  Rosa Manzo, PhD candidate, has always wanted to help Mexican Americans have access to education, but she never dreamed she’d be back in her hometown to accomplish the goal.

In Fresno County, she’s developing workshops for immigrant parents so effective that UC Davis has received a $100,000 grant from the Fresno Regional Foundation to expand the model to other county schools.

The Ph.D. student is also mentoring UC Davis students from rural Fresno high schools by encouraging them to follow in her footsteps by going to graduate school. Read her story here.

You can also find Rosa’s story among others that highlight UC Davis’s impact on California here.
